      When i looked at my brothers I found that it is its own harness, the case plug on the pass side is like the 96/97 the only thing that is like the 98 up is the range sensor

      Charged the battery all day and took it for a 15 mile ride with no lights popping up yet , needs fresh gas and I'll change the fuel filter and give it a good looking over, runs rough low on power

      It didn't go too bad, I used the cheap folding tool, once I ground the face of the tools two half circles flat so they were even I beveled the edge and it worked like a charm, had the fittings soaking in wd40 and used long needle nose hose pliers to grab the fitting and pull it toward the tool and once I saw the tool go in used them to wiggle the line off

      Didn't get anything done today due to rain but I did get the gas ran out of it and added some fuel treatment , gonna play with the cam syncro in the morning and if the DMV is open try to run it through inspection, again many thanks to all who helped, my next step is to dust off all the boxes of parts and get the 4406 and AVM hubs installed, after some serious cleaning

      Holiday

      I guess state inspection is closed where you are, I checked here in NJ and it is closed as well due to the holiday. Will you have time to take it on Monday?

      Did the speedo stop working when you switched to the latest transmission wiring harness?

      The speedo worked after the harness swap but that's where I'm going to start to look, as for the tool the one I got from OTC is supposed to be for 96 /97 but the half moon is 180 away compared to the yellow plastic one that came with a dorman synchro ,that's why I questioned yours Tim, I trusted that OTC would be correct and when I called doorman the tech support guy even said he thought the yellow one was wrong and i am using the early 3 wire syncro

      Found the speedo problem, the gear inside the pos 4404 is free spinning, good thing I have another early 4404 with the speed sensor

      Strike that last post once I got the skidplate out of the way and could get in there I realized it was just my finger slipping, so now I've gotta scratch my head for a while and try to figure it out

      ok. you just made me relive my nightmare lol i remember this like a bad flashback when i was doing mine and you had said something about the tools being different or something. i even had to go back and look at my post because i started second guessing myself if i did it wrong, and remembered there was something different about the years and tools.
